Fall is in the air!

Good Morning! Our heat wave finally broke here in South Texas and fall is in there air! It's amazing just how good that first snap feels. I was in the mood for all things fall this weekend, so I put my new Leaves of a Tree stamp to good use! I used this sketch from Inkspiration.

One new little goodie in the Holiday Mini are these Shaker Frames. I haven't made a shaker card in years, so I was excited to see these. And back when I made them before, it was done by pieces lots of Dimensionals together and then hoping for the best. It was not easy! So, these little circle frames are a huge improvement.

I used the little left overs from the Triple Layer Flower Punch for the fall leaves inside. Fun!
Stamps: Leaves of a Tree
Ink and Paper: Autumn Spice DSP, More Mustard DSP, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze,  Whisper White.
